Thank you for your question.

He can't force a sale of the house straight off but he could make you bankrupt. The trustee in bankruptcy would either sell the house or ask your spouse to pay your share of its value into your estate for the benefit of your creditors.

Happy to discuss further.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
